This is an excellent place to visit if you are interested in nature, There are many opportunities to study different breeds of birds, ponies and hares. It is run by a team of dedicated volunteers and it well worth a visit.

A beautiful place to watch wildlife and the hide is perfectly situated to view the lough. Could have a few more paths.

Lots of small birds in the trees by the path and a good hide overlooking the Lough to watch the water birds. Good toilets. The only criticism was the poor signage, making it hard to find.

This place is well 'out of the way' and worth a visit. Come dressed for a walk and bring waterproof shoes.

It's a fair distance from Belfast, about 40 minutes travel by car, but it's definitely worth a visit. The interesting background of Portmore Lough, which would include mentions of a castle and windmill, are displayed on a board inside the shelter. There's also up-to-date information...More
